Academic Programs


Minnesota Universities and Colleges offer aging-related courses and a variety of degree programs. Use courses for training, hone your skills and knowledge, and/or advance your career. Fall 2020 courses (listed below) are provided in a variety of formats:

  • On-Line, Hybrid, or Face-to-Face
  • Check with the program/department for other delivery options.
  • Many courses designed to be taken by people in any field!

Most Minnesota Universities and Colleges allow you to “try a course on for size”.
Register for ‘special student status’; and then if you decide to seek a degree,
the course can count towards that degree!

If you are 62 and over, you can take courses in the Minnesota State system tuition free and just pay fees (additional course material fees may apply). You can also take most courses for credit for only $20.00 per credit. Check with the University of College for any other restrictions.
